Modern theories of ecology, evolution and conservation biology share a core of concepts and techniques that span classical academic disciplines. This common core, coupled with the emergence of powerful new technologies, invites the kind of trans-disciplinary approach that generates many of today's most exciting scientific knowledge.

The EECB program's over-arching rationale is to give students the opportunity to develop their ideas in such a trans-disciplinary environment.

EECB Goals

The EECB program provides opportunities for students in all of the traditional subdisciplines represented at UH.

Participating Graduate Programs

This intercollegiate, interdepartmental graduate program brings together students and faculty members from the following graduate programs (which may be housed in departments with a different title or be interdepartmental), which may all offer MS, MA or PhD degrees. The skills of the faculty and the diverse research technologies available support the training and opportunities graduate students need to contribute effectively to their research in the field of Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology.
